Business and pleasure day of sorts for the Mwana Mission. We left at 10:00 a.m. for a
trip to the Zomba Plateau, one of the highest points in Malawi with a beautiful view of the valley and lakes that stretches for hundreds of miles. On the way there, we had the obligatory stops
at two roadside venders to purchase pottery for resale in the states. While this may been a high point for Jan and Heidi, it gave Rob and Greg time to reflect on how little pots ...
The sat phone doesn't work really well so when Thom tried to make a reservation with Club Makakola, down the south end of the lake he ended up yelling DO YOU HAVE ANY ROOMS, YES OR NO.

(For those of you worried about gender equality, the girls ...
... t leave the place. It is a beautiful little town right on the coast of Lake Malawi. The lake is crystal clear up there, but unfortunately far too cold for someone like me (I just can't deal with cold water). I assume it's nice though. All the others found it quite refreshing. Must have been around 22-24 degrees Celsius... The locals in Nkhata Bay are very kind as well. I even got invited for breakfast by a guy who was living behind the place where I was staying (on the breakfast ...
